Last sign in: Today


I was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. I graduated with a degree in Japanese and English literature. After I graduated college, I went to take TESOL(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate. Since then, I have spent several years teaching English, Korean and Japanese and being a supervisor to several other teachers. I have an outgoing type of personality, and enjoy teaching others to improve their knowledge of either Japanese, Korean or the English language. I also enjoy doing yoga, cooking, traveling, staying active, hiking, and also enjoy trying new things.

I like to help people learn languages faster in a fun way. So I use many different materials to boost learning faster. With my my extensive knowledge of the Korean and Japanese language, and Korean and Japanese culture I will be able to teach you anything and everything about Korea and Japan. I look forward to teaching you and to help you learn and improve on your goals.
Thank you!!

My lessons with Ms. Young-Ju are/were amazing! She actually takes the time to teach and make sure you understand what the lesson is about and what is going on. There is also a good flow of communication, no stiffness or awkwardness. And most importantly, the lesson actually feels like a lesson and not as though I'm simply being read a dictionary or reading a book.

A great instructor and I highly recommend her.
